Whether you have lost your job, grown tired of your current one or are not satisfied with it, you may have come to the conclusion that it is time to find a new, suitable job. It can be quite hard when it comes to switching between jobs and the process of finding a new one can put a lot of stress on your shoulders. Here Radviser will go over some key points on how you will be able to land a new job fast and with relative ease. Hopefully, this will help make the process smoother and easier for you.
When it comes to looking for a new job, it is very important to know what it is you are exactly looking for. Sure, you can apply to whatever notification you receive on LinkedIn and one of them MIGHT actually respond positively to your request, but you really cannot expect to find a suitable job just by doing this sort of job hunt. If you have an actual plan for your future job and know what to look for, the odds of finding a suitable one will increase greatly.
What you need to understand and keep in mind about resume writing is that you have to be dynamic and active when preparing your resume for the roles you are applying to. Don’t send the same resume to every position you find online. Tailor your resume to that specific role's needs and don’t be afraid of changing a word in your resume just because you like it that way.
Forget about copy-pasting what you find interesting in your friend’s cover letter. As a matter of fact, not only you have to be innovative, you must try to be as convincing as you can for an employer to find you and your skills suitable for the vacant role. Keep in mind that the same rule about resume writing applies to cover letter writing as well; tailor the letter to the company’s needs.
Let’s face it, without LinkedIn, chances of finding a new job quickly drops. Most employers, and by most we mean almost all of them, use LinkedIn to find a suitable candidate for the role they have on their minds. Be aware that creating an account and letting it go at that stage won’t do and you have to actively keep it up to date and tailor it to the needs of the jobs you are applying to.
Speaking of LinkedIn, some people tend to use it as a replacement for their Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Don’t be one of these people and don’t confuse LinkedIn as a platform to post your selfies. Keep in mind that you are creating a professional account for serious career goals and use it to attract the right kind of audience, which are companies and employers.
As much as LinkedIn and other social platforms are important, they are not all there is to finding a job. Meeting new people at different companies that suit your abilities and forming connections with them is another key note to remember when looking for a job. Other than that, these people might be able to introduce you to other companies that they know or work at. Connections help not only to find a job, but to take it to the next level by learning the ins and outs of it. You might learn a thing or two from a manager or colleague that you don’t even like.
We know that it can be frustrating to look for a job for a long period and not find anything but it is important to know that you should not apply to roles unsuitable for you. Rationality must be present while applying for new roles because if not, you will be wasting both your time and mental energy on roles that might not even be right for you. Keep your focus on possible roles based on your skill level, your qualification, experience and passion for the right job.
If you’re applying to a company, it is best to gather as much data as you can about them. Figure out what they stand for, what their values are and what is the company looking for in their possible employees. You don’t have to be perfect for each interview you go through with a company, but it is good to show them that you have researched their work and you are enthusiastic about it. That is of course, if you are actually interested in it and what they do.
There you have it ladies and gentlemen. To recap, we will go over the short versions of the given notes;
